* The Necrotists, from the ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic strip, are basically an entire ''artistic movement'' made up of Mad Artists. They believe murder is the only true form of creativity, and use their victims to make their 'creations'.

*** From the popular LP of this game, ''{{Boatmurdered}}'', Sankis becomes one of these after retiring as overseer of the fortress, making engravings about various things that had been happening around the fortress, including elephants killing dwarves, burning goblins, cheese, and ''homages to '''other images of cheese.'''''

* The Weaver, from PerdidoStreetStation, whose eternal goal is to increase the aesthetics of the universe. It lives off the appreciation of beauty and has [[PhysicalGod god-level]] powers so that it can make the "world-weave" ever closer to its ideal of beauty. However, [[OhCrap said beauty is incomprehensible by humans.]]

* From Creator/DeanKoontz' ''Relentless,'' we have Shearman Waxx, a book critic obsessed with destroying any writer who dares veer away from the postmodern, deconstructionist philosophy... to the point that, should they keep writing after he trashes them in a review, he will [[spoiler: hunt them down, destroy everything they own, murder their loved ones while forcing them to watch, then finally torturing them to death.]] As it turns out, he is [[spoiler: just one of an entire rogue black-ops bureaucracy dedicated to the cause, as a way to control and steer the popular culture to a more "ideal"... Nietzchean... end.]] Subverted in the fact that, as a writer, Waxx himself is an abysmal hack, using boilerplate quotes and recycled turns of phrase in all his reviews.
** Another Koontz novel, ''Velocity'', deals with a crazed performance artist named Valis, who sends written ultimatums to the protagonist rhetorically asking which people he should kill. The protagonist correctly surmises that Valis sees his crimes as work of art and eventually tracks him down, leading to a deranged monologue from Valis.

* In one encounter, [[UsagiYojimbo Usagi]] runs across a villain with an ink set that can [[ArtInitiatesLife bring to life]] anything drawn with it. Particularly vicious, because the ink is made from [[spoiler:children's blood]]. Used for {{Shout Out}}s to various {{Kaiju}}, such as Film/{{Mothra}}, {{Daimajin}}, and, of course, Franchise/{{Godzilla}}.

* The Great Gonzo from ''Series/TheMuppetShow''. Not evil like many other examples, but definitely crazy. (What goes on between Gonzo and all those chickens, when the camera isn't on?)

** Not every insane artist is a part of The Set. ''Sunless Sea'' has an underwater cigar shop known as Rosegate, whose owner has plans to create the very first underwater cigar, one that can actually work, and be improved, in zee-water. This process requires several acts of cruelty to properly gather the flavors the tobacco needs, with one last touch of HumanResources, and if successful he outright tells you he will light the zee on fire with his new cigars.

** The Modiste herself speaks of a few of her crewmen, such as the Perfidious Composer, who made entire Operettas out of her ChronicBackstabbingSyndrome, the Ender of Critics, [[CantTakeCriticism who enjoyed using knives as dull as the critics' wits to end them]], and the Silent Sculptress, who [[NoodleIncident did something so awful with clay and bone (keeping in mind Clay Men are a thing in this setting) that she got exiled]].
